Singapore is a lively and dynamic place where no one is pressed for choice of date locations. The only problem is how expensive most of these are, as is life in Singapore in general. While dating is less about the venue than the experience, you still want to impress your date even on a shoestring budget. We’ve made a list of the best free spots to enjoy dating in Singapore.
Marina Barrage offers a breathtaking bird’s eye view of the eponymous bay. If you’re in the area, catching the sunset over the skyline is obligatory. A spectacular view is guaranteed whether you’re chilling out on a bench or have prepared a picnic.
Delight in the Quirky Haw Par Park
Haw Par Villa is a great option if you’re looking for something a tad less conventional. This quirky, fun park features colorful plates depicting scenes from Chinese mythology and history. Many Singaporeans still have nightmares about the Courts of Hell, showing all sorts of bloodcurdling, hideous, gory punishments of sinners in graphic detail. Be warned that the scenes are not for the faint of heart.
Stargazing at Singapore Science Center
Did you have something more romantic in mind? Head to Singapore’s Observatory. Its gigantic telescope will provide a detailed view of planets and stars light-years away. Stargazers see both hemispheres because the observatory is very near to the equator, among the few in the world that are.
This is another beautiful, dreamy spot to be, giving romance whole new meaning with a delightful light and sound show. It is called Magical Shores and is played on two islets bathed in dreamy lights and tranquil sound. The trees come to life as a light, and sound symphony unravels in the background, drawing attention to the beauty of the natural surroundings. You and your date will be immersed in a multi-sensory experience, interacting with exquisite art on the sandy shores that draws inspiration by different elements, such as marine creatures and the tranquil flow of water. You can come to Siloso Beach again and again, but it will always feel like the first time.
Jurong Lake Gardens
Jurong Lake Gardens are a natural treasure. Let the inspiring flora and fauna of this national gem take your breath away. The site includes Chinese and Japanese Gardens, Lakeside Garden, and Garden Promenade. Relax in a hammock, take a walk on the bridge, or get in touch with your inner child at the playground and obstacle course.
Last but certainly not least, do not miss this star location for anything in the world! There’s always something to do, from the airy outdoor theater to the romantic waterfront. Up the quixotic ante with theater, dance, and live music performances against the backdrop of astounding views of Singapore’s skyline as the cool breeze ruffles your hair.
